Strong Bad taking his face off will give me nightmares for weeks, man.

"I am never doing THAT again!... oh, and here's a picture of my parents."

XD I LOVE THAT. I knew they were going to have some kind of joke about the whole scene being blocked by the giant chair, but that... was just brilliant. And unexpected. The truth is finally revealed! We just... don't get to see it! :P

Other favorite line: "Aww. Your snowman died."

The Homestar-shaped chair was so cute. And for some reason Bubs doing that little sliding thing on one foot cracked me up. Bubs in general was awesome in this one. :) He's one of my favorite characters, so I always like to see him get a lot of screen time.

I really truly did not like that email, don't ask me why. I think Bubs was waay to random, unlike his normal self, and it seemed missing something. I dunno what, but something. I also didn't like the "my parts" part..

It was a bit strange, but it overflowed with Bubs, so that made me happy. What did he do to poor Homestar, dip him in molten plexiglass so that children under 3 are sure to choke? XD I loved him in this cartoon, thought it still doesn't beat the brilliance of "Shinin' up a chicken in the mornin' mornin...." for me, it's my second-favorite Bubs time now.

"Look, Bubs, I don't care how Swedish your chair is..." The whole Eco-Chair was just great.

What are the bets someone tries to decompile the layers in Flash to see what's really going on behind the chair now? XD

I agree with Teh Ch8t....there was something lacking about this one that I couldn't put my finger on. I mean it did have it's moments like the Eco-Chair thing and the checking the email in the big chair part.

Anybody want to take a crack at decompiling this one? We gotta know what's happening on the other side of the chair.

EDIT: Never mind, I see that was already said.

I actually laughed out loud when Strong Bad answered some of the things on the list of topics not to e-mail Strong Bad about.

That. Was. Awesome. The Brothers Chaps seemed particularly sarcastic in this one.

Strong Bad sitting in a Homestar chair: pure fan service. :p

"Ooog! Oww! I can't feel my parts..."

Roffle.

This email was a bit lacking, but still pretty funny. I found the first part very unfunny save for the "Ethical Chick'n Beaks", but the Eco-Chair was hilarious. The Homestar chair...well, I must have a really sick and twisted mind, but I won't elaborate on what sprang to mind when I saw SB sitting on it. xP The huge chair blocking everything made me roffle. "Oh! And here's a picture of my parents". The sweatpants thing wasn't that funny, but the Strong Sad easter egg...XDDDDDDDDDDDDD.

5.3/10 (average)

Very interesting email. The :hr: chair was cute.

:sb: "You make less sense everyday."
:hr: chair "Ow!"

I laughed at the "less- Anthraxy" remark when Bubs pulled out the Winger CD. CAUGHT INNA MOSH

Reminded me of Stewart from Beavis and Butthead. Y'know, the kid who was slightly younger than B&B and always wore that Winger T-Shirt?

Wow. That was strange. Probably one of the weirdest e-mails for a long time, and yet, and yet, it made me laugh more than most of the other ones lately! I can't really explain why. Something about the random humor combined with just enough story cohesion... i dunno. I thought the little bub's stand flipping up and down was particularly ingenious, so they didn't have to come up with some kind of warehouse. Let's see, I liked the :hr: ow!, although I agree, that's a veeeery weird image to see strongbad sitting on hsr's lap like that. And then, "I don't care how sweedish your chair is," and "Ooh, its a father and son e-mail picnic!" and the twice times of chicken beaks... Inexplicable Genius!

9/10 ...or don't we use number ratings anymore?

That was random, but in a good way. I liked how they made fun of ergonomic "chairs," and how a lot of them look like albino dog waste. I want some of those Ethical Chicken Beaks. I'll ask my parents for some... as they stare at me, wondering where they made their mistake.

I think this was a good email that ended a little too early. Still, the Homestar Chair was good, and I liked the scene at the end with the large chair.

*snerk* same here. I KNEW they wouldn't be able to resist putting some kind of "haha, fooled you!" sort of message behind the chair, just in case someone tried to peek at something they weren't supposed to see. :P

Gets extra awesome points for the Zelda reference, though :D

I've been really happy with their most recent emails, this one and the last one have just been random enough so that you don't know quite what to expect. And a new Floppy Disk Label is always a plus too.

Ohhh, the irony. Earlier this very morning I accidentally broke my trusty office chair, and lo and behold, Strong Bad answers an email about needing a new chair. I am amazed. And I want the Le Restige now...

All in all, a pretty funny email, but that could just be because it rang close to home. ^_^

On a scale of 1 to awesome, I give it a B.

So THAT'S what SB's parents look like. Hmmm...Somehow, I expected them to be less..."Nice Try, Dodongo-ish".

Either way, though, that was a truly awesome one. 9/10.

eh... I liked the fan-teasing and Lil Strong Bad setting that house on fire. But the rest, not really. I just didn't laugh. *shrug*

And a new Floppy Disk Label is always a plus too, even if it considerably breaks the usual 1980's range of video games featured by being a game released in 1995.

I think that the last 2 e-mails have been two of the funniest ones! I laughed out loud many times and harder than I have at other e-mails. I hope they keep this up.

This e-mail lifted my spirits today. Bubs being his usual self, the randomness, Strong Bad revealing his face and parents...

10/10!

I loved this one, but for some reason the bicycle seat was my favorite part. It made me picture the Bros Chaps sitting there thinking about how to animate a biycle, then just saying screw it and going with a seat
